Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.211: Lovecraft

Published by Vertigo in 2004, Lovecraft by Hans Rodionoff, Enrique Breccia and Keith Giffen prefigures the conceit of Alan Moore's more recent Providence in presenting a biography of Lovecraft in graphic novel form - but one which assumes that the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos are real. Unfortunately my copy is currently in storage, but I seem to recall that Lovecraft was far too reliant on the pop-Freudianism of the L. Sprague de Camp biography - although it is nicely illustrated. I haven't been massively impressed by Alan Moore's attempt either, so I guess we will just have to wait for he definitive graphic novel biography of Lovecraft...
